FEMA announced that federal disaster assistance is available to the state of Nebraska to supplement recovery efforts in the areas affected by a severe winter storm and straight-line winds from April 6-7, 2024.

Public Assistance federal funding is available to the state, tribal and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by a severe winter storm and straight-line winds in Banner, Cheyenne, Dawes, Garden, Kimball, Morrill, Scotts Bluff and Sioux counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
